Re: [WSG] SEO - how to upgrade my skills?

HI,

The internet is a great resource. You won't get a certificate from it, 
but you will learn.


btw your site has 62 validation errors, even transitional XHTML doesn't 
like


href=http://afpwebworks.com/Index.cfm?pid=25


with no quotes on the attribute.

also font id deprecated.

Cheers
Luke

I need to upgrade my Search Engine Optimisation skills.  I've had 
quite good success at getting good rankings for my clients with 
attention to standards,  good practices with design and coding,  but I 
feel I need to know more about SEO and ought to update my skills in 
this area.  I need to learn more about current techniques and become 
more skilful at the techniques I use.


 

So I'm asking for your advice...What's the best way for me to 
update SEO skills?

RE: [WSG] SEO - how to upgrade my skills?

2009-05-11 Thread Mike Kear
Thanks for that little gem, Luke.I was kind of hoping for advice on the
best way to learn more about SEO, and the most up todate techniques.  I got
a bit depressed when I googled SEO, and the first 50 or so results on what I
searched for had dates in 2005.   I feel sure that SEO has changed since
2005.   Maybe it hasn't. 

 

And my site is out of date and is being upgraded.  Those errors you refer to
are a result of the WYSIWYG inline editor I used on my AFPv3.1 CMS.  It's
since been brought up to date and on the AFPv4.0CMS's I'm installing for
clients the results are up todate and much more compliant. I'll upgrade
my own site when I get time, but paying work takes precedence over
non-paying work in our household.

 

Thanks for pointing it out.  Just what I needed.

[WSG] Span within a li

2009-05-11 Thread Simon Josephson

hi guys

I am stumped with this - I have a menu list that is generated out of a  
database; the menu has several items and each has a 'class' attribute  
that reflects the item id, thus:


---
div id=left
div class=moduletablemain_er
ul class=menu
li id=current class=active item1
/li
li class=item361
a href=/index.php?option=com_contentview=articleid=222Itemid=361
span• Who Are We/span
/a
/li
li class=item111
a href=/index.php?option=com_sectionexview=categoryid=1Itemid=111
spanRecent News/span
/a
/li
li class=item359
/li

etc etc


Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to style... JUST the li class  
of item361 (the reference '361' is to a document and remains  
static)... the span of the li to • Who Are We?


Just the span within the li class item361. Is it possible?

Note... only the 'item361'; not item111 or item359, nor 'current'.


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

There must be more to this than what you have said, because:

Li.item361 a span { what:ever; } 

Should work okay, indeed is probably too verbose/explicit.

Thanks Christian, Mike, Adam and Ross

As you suggested Mike, overly simplistic...  Still no 'uptake'

Here is the URL, look to the left and you will notice a menu item with  
a bullet (hardcoded) - Who Are We; this is item. Check it out with  
firebug' etc


In advance thanks!!!

Hi Simon,

Looks like you need a more specific selector:

#left ul li.item361 span {background:red;}

does the trick :)

RE: [WSG] Span within a li

2009-05-11 Thread Jason Gray
How do you want to style this? Is the dot meant to be there???
If it's not meant to be there, check in the Joomla backend that the name for
the link does not include the dot.

Otherwise what people have said previously will work in terms of CSS
styling.

/li
li class=item359
/li

etc etc


Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to style... JUST the li class  
of item361 (the reference '361' is to a document and remains  
static)... the span of the li to . Who Are We?

Just the span within the li class item361. Is it possible?

Note... only the 'item361'; not item111 or item359, nor 'current'.


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Re: [WSG] Span within a li

2009-05-11 Thread Ben Buchanan
PS: I ended up with a string something like this... (ineffectual)

#left ul li item361 a:link span

If tha'ts the actual string you have two issues
1) Missing dot for .item361, so it's not combining with the li
2) you're only styling unvisited links
Also it sounds like your selector is losing a specificity war. Try debugging
with this:
#left ul .item361 a span { display: none !important; }
or
#left ul li.item361 a span { display: none !important; }
If it disappears, you're at least hitting the right element. Remove the
!important and if it reappears then it's a specificity issue.
Not entirely sure what you're trying to do so I'm not sure if that helps...
hope it does though :)
cheers,
Ben
